Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

I'm with FreakyFilmFan here; teens as viewed through a teenage lens. And regarding the panty shot: none of you must ever have been to a public pool or the beach - but I guess skimpy bikinis are something entirely different than striped knickers? I had to look at the scene again to even notice it, as...

Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

How does a 14 year old get coke? Very simple. One of her elder brothers (whom I also knew). How do I know she was not lying? She let me try the stuff. :shrug: Believe me or don't. It's really not that complicated of a story. Parents have a divorce, brothers are already dealing with shady shit, daug...

Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

Well, okay, Anime body types being what they are, realism can not be expected on that front. As for the dialogue: Generally, dialogue in fiction is much more refined than in reality (with a few obvious exceptions, like Huckleberry Fin, where characters speak with thick accents and so forth), simply ...

Re: Best Pair: What Eva Characters Do You Ship?

Yes, of course, Asuka moves to shade the thing she tries to read, and places herself at least three meteres away from the thing she's trying to decipher and then decides to approach the person she already approached for entirely different reasons. I'm sorry, I don't know what to say to this anymore....

No, I understand the worry. My father is in the risk group, and I probably am as well because of previous complications.

This is not just going to blow over. This might take decades. Corona? No, it won't. It isn't the Black Death. It isn't even the spanish flu. It's a mildly more dangerous version of the common influenza that gets blown hugely out of proportions. Even if the mortality rate were to be as high as the c...

Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

I just don't get how people see the Eva characters, especially in some of the weird spinoffs, as realistic depictions of teens.

Not talking about the spinoffs, since they are just that, spinoffs, but - unrealistic how?

Edit: Also, the Pilots are hardly average teens in any case.

Re: Best Pair: What Eva Characters Do You Ship?

@Orcot: You are expecting levels of knowledge and understand of Shinji far beyond what he's reasonably capable of. Just like Asuka expects him to get her hint that she meant he should have used his trumpet to break down her wall of Jericho and read her mind during the kiss. Rei is the one asking Shi...

Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

Like, I'd get all nervous about filming a scene where an infant is being bathed in the nude. Why? Being nervous to film a completely innocent act already makes the act itself lose its innocence. It equates bathing an infant with actual porn by default and draws a connection that really isn't needed...

Re: Is no one bothered by the sexualization of the characters in EVA?

On the whole, no, I'm not. There are things like Asuka's slutsuit in 2.0 that just rub me the wrong way from time to time, and I've got no clue what the spinoffs are doing, but other than that, the series and movies are fine. They are dealing with people in puberty. Excluding sexuality from that wou...

Re: QMisato (knowingly???) spreads a myth about Gendo raping Rei

A few things come to mind when thinking about Gendo, sexual predator is not one of them. Especially not with Rei, the only person he actually shows care for. I find it hard to see how he would do a 180 and try to sexually assault the physical reincarnation of his wife, the only person he truly cared...

I don't really understand all this. About a week ago Reichu made a post saying that new registrations are closed, and that the forum is only visible to members or something like that.

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Didn't Anno say that he wanted Evangelion to be one of the pillars of Anime, though? Like Mobile Suit Gundam? That sounds to me like at least a few spinoffs are in the cards.

Re: Best Pair: What Eva Characters Do You Ship?

I'll ignore the manga things, since they don't belong to the series at all. So he probably convinced Shinji who convinced Misato. I highly doubt that. Kensuke trying to get Shinji to do something? Possible. Shinji going up to Misato saying "Hey, can my best buds please come onto that secret mis...

I don't know the source material, but Benioff, Weiss and Rian Johnson are three names that don't inspire confidence, whatever the subject matter may be. To their credit, Benioff and Weiss did alright as long as they had Martin's book, but still. "Deep" and those three people don't exactly ...

Re: Unit 00 rejecting Rei

I certainly do believe there was malice in what Rei was saying to Naoko. Hm, I don't think so. Rei I seemed to be far too young to understand what she was actually saying. Having only Gendo to tell her how to behave, she just adopted his speech pattern, not knowing that it's highly inappropriate an...
